Jobs and PhDs


Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Scientific Staff (m/f)
In the department of Bioenergy we are seeking a highly committed data analyst and energy system modeler.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Halle Early-Stage Researcher (PhD) Fellowship
The aim of the PhD project is to identify how, when and where soil C management practices control the natural attenuation of reactive N as it moves from land to water. We want to develop smart, adaptive monitoring concepts for the analysis of nutrient flux dynamics across scales on the basis of multi-isotope suites.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD student (m/f)
We offer a PhD position for the comparative analysis of metal-containing membrane proteins in anaerobic microorganisms. The main methodological approaches are protein mass spectrometry (nLC-MS/MS) and metall mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). The project is embedded into a larger research unit. We target basic science but also apllication aspects.

.Nowadays, neonicotinois are among the most used class of insecticides, accounting for a quarter of the insecticide market
turnover worldwide. Due to several studies on adverse ecological effects produced by neonicotinoids application, they came under an increasing concern over their environmental impacts, until the ban decided by EU in the 2013. In that respect, sublethal effects play a key role; extremely low doses of contaminant, considered safe by the risk assassment framework, can have adverse long term effects when interacting with other environmental stressors.

The light-induced transformation of organic compounds is an important degradation mechanism naturally occurring in surface waters and atmospheric media. Humic substances and pigments are the major naturally present photosensitizers in the environment, acting as photosensitizers which can generate a variety of reactive species, such as OH radicals and excited triplet states (3HS*), promoting the degradation of organic compounds (Zhang et. al., ES&T, 2014).
Research questions addressed: 1) Do carbon and hydrogen isotope fractionation occur during the photolysis of OPs? 2) Can photosensitization pathways of OPs be characterized using CSIA?

Simulation of Transversal Mixing and Biogeochemical Reactions in Pore Networks
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig Master Thesis - Characterizing (cyano) bacterial heterogeneity and basic physiological parameters
Sustainable and ecological processes for the production of food, chemicals, and fuels are of outstanding interest in times of increasing population, limitation of fossil resources and climate change. Biological engineering can contribute to address those issues. Plants and microorganisms can be designed to produce a variety of interesting compounds for the synthesis of fine chemicals and biofuels from biological and renewable resources.
